I will be #TeamSineadOConnor forever. Sinead’s a bad-ass feminist thriving in the music industry from way, way back. So much so, in fact, that she’s named her upcoming album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss — and that’s the very sexy cover image above. You may remember the phrase “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss” coming out of Beyoncé’s mouth in a PSA for Sheryl Sandberg and the Lean In Foundation’s “Ban Bossy” campaign. It turns out that Sinead was so inspired by the “Ban Bossy” campaign that she named her album after it. As she explained on her website:

Just a note to explain the title of my forthcoming album IS taken from Sheryl Sandberg’s Ban Bossy campaign.

Originally I had a different title, The Vishnu Room, but a few months back when I saw the phrase ‘I’m not bossy, I’m the boss’ and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl’s campaign is a terribly important one.

At the stage I became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign it was too late to change the album title because the sleeve was already in print. But last week when the record company received the promo shots, which included the cover shot you now see, they asked could they change the planned cover to the current one, and that allowed me the opportunity of changing the title.

Very happy girl.
